Access to the system is limited to only those who have a need to access information. Administrative safeguards such as a security awareness program, background checks, and our information security policy ensure that only trained and trusted staff are permitted to access personal information. Some additional features of our security program include:

Secure Data Center

VentureOp uses an industry leading infrastructure service provider for its computing infrastructure needs. VentureOp’s cloud infrastructure facility (provided through the service provider) is enabled with encryption and data protection capabilities for the systems and services we develop and/or deploy within. VentureOp’s infrastructure provider is SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3 compliant.

Physical access to the data center is strictly controlled and we use the latest threat prevention technologies such as network and web application firewalls, VPN, antivirus, intrusion detection systems, web filtering and antispam technologies.
